  • Now why is Tiana in it!?

    The sad truth is that those who bring up Tiana in these discussions don’t honestly care about her. They use her as a convenient talking point without having seen The Princess and the Frog, read her comic book or Twisted Tales novel, or even acknowledged the whitewashing of her character in Ralph Breaks The Internet. Their interest in Tiana seems only to surface when it’s time to criticize another woman of color, a disheartening reality.
  • Terra Markov and Evie Zamora Mirror Each Other.

    Both of these girls needed a better support system. It’s sad because they both became friends with decent people but ended up betraying them in the end because of their trauma and pain. Evie and Terra both wanted a family; no, they needed one—loneliness for someone that young is detrimental to them. I can attest to that, I went through a period of my teen years where I felt that I had no friends and couldn’t trust anyone.
  • Twenty-two things I learned in 2022.

    Happy new year, everyone! Can I even still say that? Well, we are only 19 out of 365 days, so yes, yes, I can. People often do their number countdowns at the end of the year, but it would be nice to share mine at the beginning of the year. Here are 22 things I learned in 2022 that I have taken into 2023.
  • I kinda feel bad for Doug Walker, and I don’t like it.

    There would be no Harriyanna Hook’s Disneycember if it weren’t for Doug Walker’s Disneycemeber. It hurts because I no longer think highly of the person I got the inspiration from to do this, and it’s my fault, to begin with.
  • Why did SpongeBob and Patrick's death hurt so much?

    I felt like I knew Spongebob and Patrick. I saw them every day. They kept me company if I was the only person in the living room, and they were never mean to me. Two characters I adore dying was the last thing I wanted.
  • The Miraculous World Specials Are A Problem and Here's Why.

    So many of this show’s problems with diversity stem from the fact that it’s only white people in the writers' room; at one point, it was just white men. I was unhappy when I discovered Miraculous was planning to do more specials in different places. 

    If the Miraculous team refuses to make changes with their franchise, adding writers of color and not having Gabriel go to countries full of non-white people to bully them, they can keep these specials in the drafts. 


  • Encanto needed more time.

    Encanto would have worked much better as a mini series instead of a film because so much happened in so little time, which resulted in the ending of the motion picture being unsatisfying.
  • The double standard of YouTube fandom content.

    When I go onto YouTube and search for fandom videos to watch, the main people who show up are non-black. As I keep scrolling, I notice that it’s not just one creator’s who’s videos are showing up, it’s numerous. There are days worth of fandom content on YouTube, but the videos with the most views relating to the subject are the ones made by non-black people.
